I had an issue last night with Eureka. The first one that hit the feeds apparently had some kind of problem with sabnzbd. I had to manually download an alternate feed this morning. First time I've ever seen that problem before and I'm guessing it had something to do with the sabnzbd link being broken.

You are probably correct as I just switched ISPs recently and haven't spent much time poking around their Usenet server. My last ISP dropped Usenet access a while back.

Can you give me an newsgroup or two that I can check and seeing if they are indexing? I'm assuming if I can see them and subscribe to them in Thunderbird that they are being indexed.

I have had this problem for two shows now.
Can you go into Sickbeard 'History' and see from which NZB search provider those problem NZB's where snatched from? It's possible there were problems with the NZB's. If they came from the same search provider, you could try using an alternative one.

I can see and subscribe to both of those newsgroups through Thunderbird, so I'm guessing my ISP is indexing them.

I'll attach a screenshot.

Maybe I need to sign up for other search providers?

This sickbeard is killing me. So, it never downloaded any of the david letterman shows but I figured no one uploaded any so I deleted it. Now, I'm trying to add a show (any other show) and it won't even let me add one. After I get to step 3 in the Add Show it goes to the show list. It says "(loading)" under Next Ep and says "Loading...(path:/name of show) under Show. And I've left it alone for 15 - 20 minutes, nothing changes. I'm using alpha build 488. Is this what everyone is using? Is it stable? My PC is plenty powerful enough but something is not working. I need to get past this before I can figure out if it will even download. I know I need to adjust some settings from what I had before but I can't even get past this.

Try just reloading the page (F5 it).

Looks like they both came from NZBs'R'US. I have disabled that provider. I will see what that does.

Thanks!

Yeah, you have to refresh the page in your browser after you add a show to see the results in Sickbeard. Even though Sickbeard is listed being in Alpha, it's very stable and is reliable once configured. Once Sickbeard is tweaked for your system, the only time you need to touch it is to add or remove tv shows.

NZBs'R'US doesn't work the best with Sickbeard. I would suggest using 'Sickbeard Index' as primary search provider (free). I would suggest signing up with Nzbmatrix and/or nzb.su as a secondary search provider. Lifetime accounts with those search providers are cheap.

Knocking over Convenience Stores?

Is this the appropriate thread on Tivo Community Forum for discussing various techniques for knocking over convenience stores? Or should we start a new, more specific thread for that particular illegal activity?

What's the thinking here about weapons, pro or con? Do clerks tend to regard the mere _threat_ of a weapon seriously enough or do you actually have to show you mean business?

How do you deal with the surveillance cameras?

Is there any computer program available that tracks the amount of cash likely to be on hand, by zip code, time of day, Chain?

How often do you schedule your robberies? Weekly? Monthly? Can you make it work on a less frequent basis?

Do you report your robbery income for tax purposes? All, or just some of it?

Thanks.

I tend not to click on links from suspect sources, so I'm not sure where that link goes. If you're suggesting I report to Tivo Community Forum moderators the turn this thread has taken toward discussing illegal activities, I'd prefer to see us police ourselves. I think this thread has slid into illegality without our really thinking about it.

Let's just stop.

[EDITED TO ADD: NOT stop the thread itself, which is completely legitimate for most of its life; just stop the recent foray into specific and detailed instructions for breaking the law via sickbeard, etc..]

Not stop because the thread is shut down by moderators (usenet is a totally legitimate subject) but stop because we're responsible adults and we don't need to be treated like misbehaving children; we know what's appropriate here (TV shows) and we've just gone a little too far.

Thread is months long so its not going to stop. So do your worst or better make a debate thread of your own to be topical. Or rant on a hacking TIVO thread to be consistent.

So did anyone get in on the Terabyte Tuesday 1TB for $50 block acct from Newsgroupdirect ? That's insane prices and apparently they do this every month pretty much.

Why don't you do everyone a favor and make use of the "Ignore this thread" option available on this site?

Did a test last night for "Survivor" and it ended up working. SABnzdb did download it after Sick Beard found it during it's regular search cycle. Now I need to play around with the post processing stuff to get it into the right folder. I didn't change anything in the configuration from my earlier post.

So using my own ISP's Usenet server and the Sick Beard Index (both "free") it appears that I'm able to grab the recent and/or popular stuff without the need to subscribe to a premium Usenet server or pay for a Usenet search provider.

Thanks for the help and suggestions.

The link will add this thread to your list of ignored threads.

I don't read every post in this thread, but I scrolled up a bit and I see people talking about Letterman and Eureka.

Glad you got it working. I was thinking about what led me to pay for Astraweb and remembered it was to access other types of files besides just tv shows which I won't get into. I think a VIP membership at nzbmatrix was only like $10 one time. To me it was worth paying that to have a site index all the different files that are available. For what you are doing you could sign up at Nzbmatrix for free. The only difference in a free account and a VIP account is the number of retention days. I think free accounts can download shows back a couple hundred of days and VIP can go back 1200 days. Newsbin is another one that I've heard good things about but I believe you have to pay a monthly fee for it. I guess it just depends on how you are going to use it on whether it's worth it or not.

@Malcontent and @brettatk

I signed up for a lifetime VIP account at Nzbmatrix for just over $11 which, I agree, is cheap. I added my details (user ID and API string) into Sick Beard and we'll see if "wanted" back cataloged / older shows pop up.

Now onto the whole post-processing thing and maybe a short document to keep track of all of the changes I made to get it set up. Like others have said, it could be a bear to get this up and running again if you had to reconfigure everything like on a new PC.

Double check to see if your ISP has a limit on the amount of data your allowed to download a month from their usenet servers. Some ISP's have download caps on their usenet servers. Also find out what the retention is on their usenet servers. They may only have enough retention for newer stuff.

If there are limits and low retention on your ISP's usenet servers, then a paid usenet provider may be needed.

So I added Survivor. There wasn't one that said South Pacific so I just chose Survivor. Not sure if that matters???

It still says (loading) under Next Episode. has a question mark under Downloads. A green check under Active. Status says Continuing.

Does all that look right?

Under Search Providers I have everything checked. NZBsRUs, NZB.org, etc.
I don't have a "VIP" membership anywhere so I just entered my username in NZBMatrix under the Configure Built In Provider. I don't have an API Key (I think that's what VIPs get??)

Just noticed in the Log file section I have all of this.

What exactly does that mean?

Will do. It's a new ISP for me so I have limited details and will have to do some checking with them. Thanks!

I'm sorry - I was just making a joke. I guess it wasn't that funny or obvious -- sorry if I got your hopes up that it was a real solution. (The joke was that you blamed the problem on Sickbeard hating you, so I told you to make sure "User Affinity" was selected). My earlier suggestion to refresh the page was serious though - that's what I always have to do (and it works) to progress from the interminable loading screen.
